Hamilton is an American watch company with Swiss connections; the company is part of the Swatch Group. Therefore, quality and style are the highest priorities. The new Hamilton Viewmatic Automatic is no exception with its impeccable form and function. It comes in a stainless steel case that measures 40mm and is water resistant to 50 meters. Its movement is automatic ETA caliber 2895 with 27 jewels and has a power reserve of 48 hours.

Btw, there’re several versions of the Viewmatic, I feel that the variant at the very top of this post is the nicest; due to the minimal amount of rose gold accent (not too much to look overly Rolex-ish, but just enough to give the watch some color in all the right places). The inter-looping also gives the dial some design without overwhelming the underlying elegance. The other 2 also featured in this post may or may not be to your liking; for me, these bottom 2 didn’t have the 2 lovely design flairs I commended for the 1st one. Price is around SGD$1, 100.
